Timothy Noah: Across the Great (Income) Divide
Say what you will about the Occupiers, but they got one thing right: 1%-vs.-99% is not only true, says Noah; it threatens our very democracy. For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots, with the top 1% collecting some 21 percent of the nation's income. Noah, author of The Great Divergence (based on his award-winning series of articles in Slate), calls this potentially the country's most important change during our lifetimes; he explains how it happened, the threats it poses, and how we can begin to reverse it. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
